Headband #2…

Whilst I was on it…

This one is knit in Mirasol Sulka Legato in Birch (gray) and Twilight (purple). The stranded pattern is Garnudsalg´s single Italian Tweed in Sol (yellow). It´s lined with a thin 100% wool knitted fabric. The raw edges are sewn together using an overlock sewing-machine. Love it! …and best of all; I´m well off in the headband-departement for the next few years!

Headband…

This started out as a hat, and ended up as a headband…

Skiing in the spring always reminds me that I need a headband …or two… same procedure every year. Yet, I never seem to get around to knit headbands. So I decided the hat on the needles were not a hat, but a headband – much quicker! In fact I finished this so fast that I just had to add some time-consuming finishing at the end. The inside looks almost as good as the outside …IMG_6152IMG_6155IMG_6156It´s knitted in Telespinn´s Mari (mohair) in Gray/blue with Turquoise pattern – and lined with Du Store Alpakka´s Tynn Alpakka (alpaca) in orange and pink on needles 3mm / US 2,5.

I´m ready for more spring skiing!
